Instructions for Submitting Documents to the IRB Office

The Butler IRB processes all research submissions through the IRBnet website: IRBNet is secure, web-based, and may be accessed from virtually any computer using a web browser.

All users will need to self-register in the IRBnet system and affiliate with Butler Hospital IRB. Training Energizer Documents are available in IRBnet, on the IRB website or by contacting your IRB Administrative Office. Current versions of all required IRB forms and templates can be found in the "forms and templates" library within IRBNet. All investigators are required to download and use the latest version of the protocol form, consent form, and adverse event reporting form for submission of a new research project for IRB review. Guidelines, local IRB requirements, Butler and CNE policies, and IRB submission deadlines and IRB meeting dates are found here well as within IRBnet.

Please Note:

  • All Users must self-register in IRBNet.
  • All project submissions must be signed by the PI before submitting to the IRB.
  • Training documents are required to be uploaded into your User Profile in IRBNet.
